Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck says he would stand with LGBT advocacy group GLAAD in the fight against Russia's anti-gay laws.

Speaking to CNN's S.E. Cupp, Beck suggested that rather than focusing on controversial comments such as those made by Fox News' Megyn Kelly about Santa Claus' race or by Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, the media should have been paying attention to extremely homophobic remarks made by a Russian TV celebrity.

"Do you know what happened last week in Russia?" he asked. "One of their biggest stars on television said that homosexuals should be put into the ovens alive. I didn't think you could make the Holocaust worse but he's like, 'Why the gas chamber? That seems a little too humane. 'Let's put them alive in the ovens.'"

He continued, "I said on the air this week, I will stand with GLAAD. I will stand with anybody who will stand up and say that's crazy. That's dangerous. That's hetero-fascism. That's what that is. And we're talking about Duck Dynasty. Really? Really?"

"With this one soundbite, Beck has done more to speak out against Russia's war on homosexuality than any of his conservative radio colleagues, thereby showing clarity of his belief that while his religious views may say one thing about homosexuality, he does not believe any government has any place legislating such morality," wrote Mediaite columnist Andrew Kirell.

Beck is one of many prominent media and public figures to speak out recently against Russia's anti-LGBT legislation and pronouncements, notes the Huffington Post.
